One of the great constants about TV technology is that every year the engineers improve the picture quality, especially in the top of the line models like Samsung's H8000 series.

Samsung UN55H8000 Curved 1080p LED TV

 

This is actual hardware local dimming instead of software dimming seen on lower tier Samsung LEDs this year. It makes much more of a positive impact on picture quailty. We felt the image with this feature on was better than off.

Colors really pop on the 65H8000 for an LED TV, but the backlight can sometimes work against itself. Just keep the level between 70-80% and the picture won't suffer. From up-converted content color flow is much better than other TVs on the market – one...

Samsung UE55H8000 review

 

Samsung's full HD TV flagship gets the curve

Attractive curved-screen design ; Excellent picture quality ; Sophisticated Smart TV system ; Good sonics

Expensive for HD set ; Curved screen exaggerates reflections ; Picture presets not helpful ; Steep interface learning curve

Although it looks expensive for a 55-inch full HD TV in these increasingly 4K times, there's no doubt that the UE55H8000 is a fantastic HD picture performer and a heck of a looker to boot.

Samsung UE55H8000 review

 

Editor's note 1 May 2014 : After the original version of this review was published, Samsung informed us it had sent us a pre-production sample. It has now sent us a final production sample to test and we have updated the review and score to reflect its...

The Samsung UE55H8000 produces beautiful pictures when viewed in brighter rooms, has an excellent smart TV system and its audio quality is good too. Its curvy nature and stylish design means it also looks the business.

It's hugely expensive (around £2,000) for a Full HD TV.

Supremely stylish and bursting with features, the UE55H8000 produces excellent pictures, but it's very pricey for a Full HD model.

Samsung UE55H8000

 

Does Samsung's flagship Full HD TV for 2014 pale against its UHD sibling?

Excellent 2D and 3D picture quality ; Easy to use smart TV system ; Good sound quality ; Has all UK catch-up TV services

Curved screen can be problematic with reflections ; Might feel expensive once its rivals are out

Finally, we’d suggest caution around the UE55H8000’s dynamic contrast system. For while it can marginally improve the image’s contrast, it can also make dark scenes look unstable thanks to the fluctuating brightness levels it causes. So given that the...
